SLO Food Bank helps fill summer lunch void

Posted: Updated:

The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County is offering free lunch programs to feed children in the summer months when they are out of school.

The free summer meals are available to all those ages 18 and younger. Depending on the site, children receive a healthy breakfast, lunch or snack.

"The idea behind it is that, during the school year, there are kids who are getting free or reduced lunches through the school, and during the summer, that is not happening unless they are enrolled in a summer school program, so the food bank expands children's programs," said Heather Donovan, the children's program manager of the food bank. "We have children's programs throughout the year but we expand it during the summer."

Lunches exceed federal nutrition regulations with five varying components, such as: a sandwich, a side item, a salad, a fruit and milk.

There are locations all around San Luis Obispo County. Click here for more information.
